Al ail llie Wg meetings this has been the predominating feature It shows popular appreciation of the fight he- has mado and guarantees future support. . Folk in the Sfato fight stands exactly for 'the. same principles which the Democratic' city ticket headed by Mas-or Wells represented nearly four years ago In thd municipal campaign. Foil: as the candidate for Governor and spokesman of the Mis souri Idea was made possible by the -victory won by tlie Wells ticket 'Now a Democratic city ticket is nominated in keeping with the high standard set two and four 'vcars ago. 5Tho Democracy, In city and State, has closed ranks and goes before the people with the same credentials, declaring unequivocally for hon esty and efficiency In govemmfnt. Because of enmities made In the course, of Folk's courageous prosecutions, because the malice which distorts facts In a campaign sometimes has an ef fect on the public mind, it had been feared that the Circuit Attorney's chief obstacle in obtaining an overwhelming majority would lie here at home in St Louis. But it is not so. Whenever he appears before a local audience the cheers give the lie to any such supposition. ,cHc has .to meet only the knifing of the corrupt crowd, of which the notorious head Is Edward But ler. Its strength in votes is difficult to estimate, though It will amount to several thousand. The manifest duty of every well-meaning citizen Is to look upon his vote as one that will wipe out another from such a quarter. Put It In to indorse Folk's work and his platform; put it In for the city ticket In indorsement of the Wells administration. Ect St. Louis citizens respond, and that overwhelming ma jority which he deserves, and which the State for the soke of Its credifc before the nation should give Iilui, will bo plied up to the 100,000 mark. Let them respond, and it will be known that the popular will chooses the government of Wells and repudiates the government of Ziegenheln. chuiia, only two died. This admirable record can not be accepted as a standard, but it is at least Indicative, taken with other reports, that the little Yankees of the East are bringing something to Oc cidental medidua and surgery. ' ONE LESSON OF THE WAIt.. War would not be so horrible if all of its evils were those of mere carnage. The death of a thou sand men by bullets is a dreadful thing, but the , jdealh of ten thousand by the slow process of tortur lng disease is much more terrible. . Every record of international armed conflict tells Its story of the ravages of disease. It has .been a generally accepted fact that great camps of soldiers t must lose more men by the operation of malign germs than by the force or cunning of the human enemy. It Is more than interesting to note, there fore, that tha Japanese lists of men out of service show that the common maladies of tlie camp have worked little havoc In the Manchurlan army. The men not only fight the Russian enemy, but they fortify against the stronger and" more subtle danger ;. that Is to be pursued chiefly by the microscope. "There have been no stories of camp fevers, 110 ac- k counts of death-dealing dysentery, nothing of the pt plagues that are common to the races of the far i . We are also Informed by an officer of the United , States Army that the methods of Japanese surgeons 7ln tho field are almost revolutionary. First aid o xi rthe 'wounded, with conventional use of antiseptic liJM fprceautlou, is practiced much the same as it was Sf &3ii fcufwar with Spain. Then comes the revolution: s; Athens' ore no operations in the field. The wounded 'UTs man Isljandflged and cared for, but the cutting aud 'Ssjj&proWng .follow only in the atmosphere of the jC equipped hospital, generally far away, sometimes as 4vH5siOmt from, the battlefield as five hundred miles.

Itohcarsal of the tactic pursued by the Repub lican party thi"! year In Missouri is enlightening as to some phasca of the State campaign. Republicans held a gang-ridden convention, in which neither the will of the rank and file nor the Interests of the party at large were considered. Handled by inl!ueuc.s that would hpare.no expense or stop at nothing to beat Joseph W. Folk, leaders framed up a combination and proceeded to nom inate a ticket "suitable" to their interests and purpose.-. The negative record of Mr. Wiilhrldgr. In view of tlie ut amount Ksue in the Stale, testifies amply just how "suitable" that ticket was made. They picked up old and empty charged fruitlessly hurled at Folic in tlie pilmaiy campaign aud at tempted to make their campaign by utt.-icUiug him with them. Hadley was carted around with Wal brldgu to utter these misstatements and did do so. Similar and more ridiculous assertions were circu lated for use by the country press. Among others of the latter was one that Folk expects.to be elected by fraudulent votes in St, Louis, made possible by tho Nesbit law, though every informed citizen knowH that tlds law was repealed and another substituted, for which Republican members voted, at the last session of the Legislature. In this same boiler-plate material, sympathetic references have appeared to "poor old Ed Butler." All told, this phase of the campaign had at least all the external characteristics of having been In spired from the corrupt sources whose evil voca tions will be gone should Tolk become Governor of Missouri. Next, Hadley was pulled off; orators were or dered to talk Roosevelt; Walbrldw was made to stand on the full dinner pall Instead of lelng com pelled to hold the hose while his talkers directed their composite of lies and exaggerations at the per sonality of the Democratic nominee. This merely meant, of course, their rather late realization of the failure of their initial campaign. They changed front, made a national campaign of It. They brought Fairbanks here to indorse Wal- brldge, to say that he ought to be elected because he is a Republican, which the Indiana Senator con spicuously omitted saying when he Cist spoke in Missouri. And yet one thinks of the utterance of Senator Cockrell, whose word goes far, "President Roosevelt is for Folk, for I heard him say so my self." The two heads of the Republican ticket ap pear io contradict each other, and now It only re mains lor Rooevelt himself to turn a peculiar som ersault, under pressure from the machine of this State, and write some sort of a letter our here an nouncing that the principle of honesty In public of fice will be best 6erved in Missouri by electing the man who was Mayor from '03 to '97, -when there was plenty of boodle and nobody to suppress it. The Missouri Republican party has succeeded In doing tlds year what It has systematically accom plished In the past it has discredited Itself. Its policy his been merely a tortuous effort "to twist Itself into tlie confidence of the people and at tlie same time obscure tho central Issue of the cam paign. It cannot harmonize Its candidate, or the principal cogs In its machine or Its record with .the right side of this paramount issue, so it resorts to eccentric flip-flops, like that toy we see so much In the street which tho man makes to hop with a jstring. ,It stands nowhere, offers nothing, promises,! iiommg; its aim is omy to oeat i oik, ana its course more than warrants suspicion that Its nourishment comes from those political sewers where work the distributing ageutfi of corrupt Interest'. Such tac tics cannot confuse any earnest and thinking voter. r A NEWSPAPER NOVELTY. The reader of The Sunday Republic Is particular ly fortunate. He gets not only the completest and most reliable of news services, the best and bright est of the literary, color and comic features that aro a part of the great Sunday paper of this day, but lie lias, as well, as a part of his favorite paper, a magazine that will stand comparison with any of the famous weeklies of this or any other country. Writers of world fame are regular contributors to this extraordinary newspaper magazine. Tho cleverest of artists illustrate what these men and women write, and careful editing assembles the re sult in a manner refreshing and attractive. No weekly publication Is better, from any point of view, than The Sunday Republic's Magazine. Few, mdecd, are as good. And there Is no extra cost to Republic readers. VOTE. All the argument necessary In urging use of tlie free citizen's franchise is summarized in tliat old one which points back to ihe day of tho Infant American Republic, when eternal vigilance was named as the price of liberty. In a regular use of the voting privilege lies the first test of patriotism. Certainly, in our land, though it be in the midst of private business activities more stimulating than at any time in the history of the world, that man must be very rare "with soul so dead who never ro him self hath said, this is my own, my native land." Of course, few of us nowadays need continual senti mental gush about patriotism or any other subject, but let us hope, at least, that the real tiling is with us: Wc should not hesitate to out with it at the proper time, and in the proper manner. Tell your friends who Joke about voting, who act as if su perior to It that they ought to vote, and why. It was the fight for the ballot and intelligent use of it ivhich established this country's democracy. It must be the continued struggle to .preserve the suf frage from defilement, and the continued honest use of It which will make a glorious future of manhood government In the big essentials, as to tlie nation's growth and general well-being, It may not make at a par ticular time hSO much difference for whom or for which party the vote may be cast If It be cast con scientiously and If the great-masses of the people r fn tn flip noils. Khnnlrt disnosltlon anncjir in tho country at large to consider a business claim upon time above tho duty of a half-hour or hour required to vote, then that is a much more serious matter than may befall ns a consequence of electing this or that man. Tor then, not one, but elections In gen eral, will bo won by the element which serves self interest through the ballot But If the masses as we confidently believe they will continue to bring about the honest expression of a majority upon tlie Issues of tho day, then the Ship of State will be guided by the best rudder possible, the sound judg racnt of a free people.

PUBLIC COMFORT STATIONS, The Board of Public Improvements displays re gard for public convenience in arranging to install comfort stations In the' Union Market, tho Court house and other public buildings. While the Idea is not now, as there are such stations In the large cities ot Europe, It Is not yet generally applied in this country. Tlie'comfort' station Is, In plain terms, just a lav atory, which Is accessible to everybody, which is maintained by the city, in a public place, for the accommodation of the public. It is a convenience which seems to be almost a necessity. Thin proposed Improvement, comparatively unim portant as It Is, indicates the purpose of the admin istration to bring the city into the first rank in all rcspetr. It shows that the administration Is not searching for spectacular effects, but for small as well as great ways by which the interest -of the people may be served. &.. Four jeats ago the Circuit Attorney candidates were made Ihe central KMie of the fall local cam paign. Rood a investigations were recognized as a public neeevMty.

(Srneral I'tlucatlon and theSrofeislumi. American Medicine. A majority of the teachers of medicine, while recos nlzlns the desirability of a liberal education, haf felt equally convinced of the unsultablllty of the old strictly clas&Ic course as a preparation for our profession. Some have even condemned a collcgu education for prospective students of medicine, incrlooUiip altozether the' efTort3 of those educators in our colleges and unitcrsilies i?ho aro working for a broader and more elastic collese course. Kcluctantly, but apparently forced by the de mands of the times, Princeton lias tills jear Introduced changes in its ccrrlculum, retaining u. minimum number of prcacrlbed stulies in the- first tno years of tho col lege course, and attempting to secure concentration of the T.ork of the Junior and se-nlor ye-ars, although at tempting to avoid the narrowness and inelasticity of the so-called group sj stem. We are clad to see theso changes because, Mnce creator requirements liac.lcen made for the medical de;rree, an increasing1 number of students havo felt that they must ha deprhed of the benefits of a. liberal education. With a properly adjusted electUo system it is possible for the student to select such stud ies as will bo most valuable to him, and experience has shown that a very consldcrablo proportion of students may be trusted to make such a selection. If a young mart, well advanced in his teens, lias not sufllcient dis cretion to select, with the adlce of his teachers and friend?, such studies as are suitable to his nced3. It is extremely doubtfi.1 if he ever will reach jears of discre tion and whether ho is really worth educating. Tlie progress in medical scienco during recent jears Iras made necessary the doubling of ths number of j ears of study required. Within fifteen jears the majority of medical schools of the .United States liavo increased the courso ot study from two to four jears, and the raoro pro gressive schools havo added two or three months to the term of study, wldch formerly counted for a. j-ear's work, so that the amount of time spent in study for tho medical degree has really been much more than, doubled. If the colleges and universities of this coun try are to furnish a preliminary education for the army of medical students, the necessity for -changes in the traditional collese courso must be recognized. Mr3. Gorge Wiilard Teasdale's recep tion jetcrdy afternoon was the large i and Important social affair of the day. No other entertainments chanced to con flict, and fully VM ladles on Mrs. Teas da'.e's calllns list took adiantage of tho ciceptlonallj- fine and balmy afternoon to pay their respects to the hostess and to greet Mrs. Joseph Malone Whcless, frister-in-law of Mrs. Teasedale and a bride of last summer. The! two received In th green parlor, r.hlch V.J3 decorated slmplj- but effective ly with white chrj-sjntliemums and an abundance of green foliag. Mrs. Tcasc dale wore a crcam-Iace gown, Brussels und Itenais'ance, combined to form a handsome robe, which was built over chif fon and decorated with white chiffon fall ings. Somo diamond corsage ornaments completed her custume,vhlcli was particu lar! becoming. Mr?.

Misb Mi dred llupfer.e and JUss Anna Caldwell faerved punch in the hail. The dining-room was handsomely deco rated In white and green. The round rcrvlng table was covered with pale-green tatlu und again v. lth Hcnaissanee lace, while a. mas.-i of growing white carnations and ferns occupied the center of the table, tiny eloctnct globes adding life to the group. An Immense shower bouquet of lirge white featherj' enrj'santhemuras gave tha central note, tied witn white ribbons, white directly above the table the big scarlet dropllght was further trimmed with white flowers and greens. Against the rich red walls of the dining-room, this scheme of white and green w-as particu larly good. The mantels were also ar ranged with white flowers and greeii3, and the buffet similarly banked. In the rear recepUon hall a Harp orchestra played popular mita'c during the hours, which were from 3 to 3 o'clock. A few ot the many callers were: Mu.ime IJclvreen Ttvo Txrr. Catholic Standard.

What a wonderful thing- if our national Government should chose some place, centrally located and I know of no place more suitable than St. Louis for tho es tablishment. In marble and granite, of Just such a city; a substantial expression of the artistic and architec tural genius of the age. In this marble city, the great est artists could meet and the lesser artists study; writers and pcets could come together and forget the commercialized aspect of literature. In communion with tho spirit of tho masters; great and small musicians could gather for a festival of sound, In which rag-time would play no part. Tlie Idealists and dreamers, those Impractical people who3 mission It Is to keep us in touch with things ot alue higher than can bo reckoned in coin, could here meet and unfold their plans. Wo should have at least one place In America, "a holy of holies," set apart for intellectual and spiritual pursuits, as well as for the display ot products, and it should bo maintained by the Government. Wc havo spent vast sums on forest reserves, and thla is as It should be; we must keep from vandalism our beautiful natural parks; but let us respect the work of man as well as that of Mother Nature, and establish for him a city which shall be the highest expression of bis CCinus.
